We didn't realize we needed more than one day to spend in downtown! You can keep yourself entertained with food, shopping, wine, and time with friends and family. Definitely spend some time in downtown Fredericksburg!

There are a variety of shops in town but we were a little disappointed because several were closed on Sunday. Hello! When you own a store on a Main Street of a tourist town, you need to have your store open for business.

Fredricksburg shopping is one of the lures of this area. Lots of individually owned shops featuring clothing, gifts, wine, dog and pet treats, antiques, restaurants, microbrewing, wineries, museums and more. The ladies in our group spent two half days shopping and did not see it all. The shopping areas have grown into clusters, with short walks to the next cluster.... More

There is a nice variety of shops along main street. Most seem to be home décor and boutiques. There is also several restaurants along the strip with outdoor and indoor seating. It is worth visiting if you are in the area however the better antique shops and art galleries are just off the main strip.

Too many resale clothes stores but really enjoyed the rest of the large variety of places to look and buy.

The shops seemed a little too boutique-type with lots of overseas imports. We were hoping for more cozy antique shops and local artisans with local materials.

There is something for everyone on Main Street. I especially liked the Fredericksburg General Store and the 5 and 10 cent store with its variety of items and unique gift ideas. I can't remember which one it was, but either the General Store or the 5 and 10 cent store would only accept cash or checks because they weren't equipped... More

Yeah, Yeah. Shops. I'm like, cooling My heels here, while Mom forages through things. She did pick out a nice Texas themed shirt, I still have it. Groups of schoolchildren were trick-or -treating, even though Halloween was over.

We loved the variety of shops, the eating establishments, the restored downtown area and the friendliness of the people. Even in the heat of summer it was nice. Travel against the sun (or on the opposite side of the street) and it will be even better with shade.

Spent the weekend. I mean there is like two main things to do in this town: wineries and mainstreet. Mainstreet was cool. Lots of good shopping, some over priced. Mix of stuff to keep most people interested. Mix of places to get drinks in the middle of shopping so that can break it up. Seems like we found benches to... More
